Kristin Neff, Ph.D., says that it's time to "stop beating yourself up and leave insecurity behind." Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind offers expert advice on how to limit self-criticism and offset its negative effects, enabling you to achieve your highest potential and a more contented, fulfilled life. More and more, psychologists are turning away from an emphasis on self-esteem and moving toward self-compassion in the treatment of their patients—and Dr. Neff's extraordinary book offers exercises and action plans for dealing with every emotionally debilitating struggle, be it parenting, weight loss, or any of the numerous trials of everyday living.

I find a lot of self help books rely on anecdotes to "puff up" the content. Not the case here. Kristin Neff illustrates her ideas with great examples, and has some wonderful exercises. Her ability to illuminate the subtleties of our inner world with all its biases, tricks and foibles and our ability to be with it all in a self compassionate way is life-affirming, and life changing. What a gift!
